The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently announced a recall for some of its models, like the CR-V and the Odyssey, along with the Acura RDX, because of some brake shift interlock problems.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, just over 200,000 cars will be affected by this recall in the United States, and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the braking system fixed. The NHTSA says that in the affected models it may be possible to shift out of the Park position without depressing the brake pedal in sub-freezing temperatures.
If this happens, the risk of a crash and / or injury is higher but until now, Honda didn’t receive any complaints on this problem and no crashes or injuries have been related to this issue. The problem was discovered during an internal investigation. Dealers have been announced and the brake shit interlock system will be replaced free of charge. The affected cars include 128,000 units of the Honda CR-V, 59,000 units of the Honda Odyssey and 17,500 units of the Acura RDX, in the 2012-2013 model years. The recall is expected to being in late May, and owners will be notified in mid-May.
